Adhesive & Equipment (A&E), a leading supplier of adhesive dispensing equipment, provides a wide range of hot melt equipment and adhesive products from the industry's top manufacturers, such as Nordson®, Graco®, Valco Melton®, and ITW Dynatec®, just to name a few. And to ensure the best overall experience for our customers, A&E also provides a wide range of associated repair and maintenance services. This holistic approach ensures clients have a hassle-free experience, eliminating the risk of costly process delays and equipment failure.
We proudly offer comprehensive, affordable, and reliable servicing options for a large selection of hot melt equipment. Some of these capabilities are outlined below.
Complete Systems Rebuild
To improve performance, it may eventually become necessary to rebuild entire systems as part of overall cleaning and maintenance procedures. This involves taking apart components and thoroughly cleaning them before reassembly. Additionally, seals and sensors are replaced, and any layers — such as Teflon coatings — are redone. Cleaning is accomplished with autoclaving and media blasting before repainting. The rebuilt unit is shipped to the customer after passing a 16-hour operation test, and the serial number can be tracked with ease.
Plant Installs and Repair
The installation of hot melt adhesive equipment and accessories is a complex process, but the technical team at Adhesive & Equipment is uniquely qualified for the job, with 15-25 years of experience in the field. Our team can help install new equipment or reinstall newly rebuilt equipment. We can also help train customer-side technicians in all equipment operations, further ensuring processes run smoothly, safely, and efficiently.
Pumps are an essential part of most industrial processes, and optimal performance is critical for smooth, safe operations. With 12 years of pump rebuilding experience, our technicians are capable of delivering fast, highly efficient pump rebuilds. In fact, a next-day-delivery option is available on all of our stock adhesive pumps, and our team ensures rebuilt units perform to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specs. Rebuilt units must pass all relevant pressure inspections and tests before being returned to the client. Additionally, Adhesive & Equipment provides a rebuild-exchange offer for all melters and pumps.
Applicators can be completely disassembled, autoclaved, and media blasted during the rebuild process. Also, all worn-out parts — such as the electrical cord set (w/RTD), heaters, and seals — are replaced to ensure the units pass pneumatic, hydraulic, and electrical tests before reinstallation.
It should be noted that this is not a rebuild operation; A&E does not rebuild existing modules. However, our team, with over 20 years of technical experience, can build new modules to suit any process requirement. In fact, stock modules can be shipped in under a day. And since our modules come with a full warranty and are available at prices 50% lower than market costs, it’s often much more cost-effective to replace modules than rebuild them.
Charred tanks of any size can be easily cleaned and then recoated with Teflon. This will prevent materials from sticking to the tank, reducing cleaning and maintenance time — and, in turn, reducing overall costs and labor needs.
The highly experienced team of experts at A&E will work to find a solution for any technical problem related to hot melt adhesive technology. Our dedicated hot melt engineers and technicians are only a call away, offering comprehensive assistance to ensure smooth process operations for all clients — no matter how complex or unusual the issue.
